  • I am very impressed with the results from this photo shoot. Test shot for location: Lots of light, handheld. Came back with tripod for these: This photo has amazing 3D feeling. I'm sure part of it ...
  • sd Quattro, Sigma 15-30mm lens, tripod, keeping it at ISO100
  • I'm a bit distressed at the amount of dust I'm seeing on mine. I've cleaned sensors before, so it's not huge, but I'm surprised at the amount after only a new months.
  • I would love to read through and test your primer. I've tried SFD a couple times, and it didn't work well at all. -John
  • because all my AF lenses from Sigma are too old to AF properly on the sdQ, so really, they are all MF lenses. I do have it set up for the AF/AEL button set to AF, and under AEL I have the viewier ...
  • This is what you could do for color images before Photoshop!
  • Replied in youthland
    Claudio, absolutely blown away by such a wonderful collection of photographs. well done! -John
  • I like the images coming from the sdQ. But in terms of what I do with images, I'm usually downsizing to share online. If I were printing large prints and getting paid to do it, then I'm sure the ...
  • Ted, My first SD9 was bought used, but had the original 1.00 firmware. I almost wish that I had left it that way. Skies were lavender, and greens were olive. It was terrible! I probably have a few ...
  • Ted, In my mind, that is exactly what Foveon Blue should look like. But that's from an SD9 point of view. I'm not sure if everyone would have the same opinion. -John
  • Wait time is the reason I didn't buy SD1 Merrill. I had one to test and tried a fashion/portrait shoot. Wait times were so incredibly long, compared to Canon camera I owned, that I knew I could ...
  • I've found that adding an s-curve to b channel in Lab mode will come close to the effect that you see in SD9 images. I think SD9 is the place to find Foveon Blue. I don't know if there is an exact ...
  • Perhaps with the mirrorless camera, there will be more adapters made for the SA mount. I have a 300mm Olympus OM lens that I can use on both Fuji and Canon EF/EOS with an adapter. If it works on ...
  • Thank you. The ice changes normal items into something magical. You can see we still had plants with leaves in fall color at the time of the storm. When I took these, the ice was already melting, ...
  • From what you described, I don't think my idea would work, but if you have ice and the ability to place an off camera flash, you can make some beautiful highlights by putting the flash under the ice. ...
  • The strange thing is, that if you change preferences to not perform auto-binning, you also don't get the option to use it in the editor when processing images. I think that's a missed opportunity.
  • Two more thoughts.... First - thank you for the complement! I'm very happy with the output from the sdQ. These were the first shots I mentally decided that I was shooting for B&W output, and I like ...
  • I'm afraid I have no valid viewpoint here. I'm upgrading from an SD9 to the sdQ. I've successfully printed SD9 images at 16x24 inches, but have not printed any sdQ images yet. Theoretically, if you ...
  • With the Quattro layers, it would make sense for the first level of binning to average the top 4, but use the lower levels as the single pixels. I've shot some, and posted here with some examples ...
  • So, back to the final question... I definitely have a varied interest in what I photograph, and have always lIked monochrome images. Ansel Adams was always a favorite for me. I am feeling very ...
